Hi Janina,
I found a short section of the Emotion Markup Language spec that had an example of SSML and EmotionML interoperating
https://www.w3.org/TR/emotionml/#s5.2.2. I think this is all that we talked about, but the markup seems very straightforward.

Best,
Debbie

Thank you, Debbie!

It's great to hear that interoperation of EML and SSML is expected
behavior, at least to some degree.

I've cc'd our Spoken Presentation TF with this important news, and I'll
keep you updated as our planning proceeds.


Best,

Janina
